Restoration of the West Wall
Following a survey it was recommended that work be undertaken on the West Wall of the church as it was beginning to lean, cracks were widening and a corner support, probably built in Victorian times, was now pulling the wall out of shape, rather than as intended pushing the wall into shape. The total cost was estimated in the region of £109,000. The church is mentioned in the Domesday Book as having a priest and was probably then about the same size as it is now.
Letton is a small parish of fewer than 100 people with 37 households registered for Council Tax (according to Herefordshire Council Tax Data 2008). Although the post office and shop are long gone we are lucky we still have a pub and church.
English Heritage generously agreed to part-fund the work on this Grade 1 listed building and the Parochial Church Council held a series of events to raise the funds they needed to provide for their share of the expenses.
The work has now been completed with many thanks to all those who played their part in maintaining our beautiful church for future generations.
